Artist of the Day- Magdelena Abakanowicz(click the photo to see more)

Born and living in Poland her life was often uncertain under Soviet rule. Initially her sculptures were made from fabric she wove…then she moved to burlap…and then to bronze. These figures  “constitute a warning, a lasting anxiety. Very few images in contemporary art are as emotive and as disturbing.”

I don’t think I need to say more. These are pretty powerful sculptures.
